An entertaining way to listen to music.

rydad | Sept. 18, 2013 | Review of Beat Hazard

A frantic and highly entertaining way to listen to your music. Similar to old school 'Asteroids' style arcade shooters, but powered by music of your choice. An excellent way to kill time.

Top Notch RPG

rydad | Sept. 16, 2013 | Review of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition

Despite being seven years old, it's not less impressive than when it first came out. I didn't even play it until it was about four years old and that still did nothing to lessen my enjoyment. The amount of detail put into everything (as well as all the other Elder Scrolls games) is just unreal. Whenever you think you've found everything in Cyrodiil, you'll suddenly come across some unexplored castle in the woods, or cave in the mountains. Even after putting well over 100 hours of gameplay in, I still wasn't tired of it. One of the best RPGs and worth every penny. Also, be sure to get the GOTY edition, as the Shivering Isles DLC is definitely worth those few extra bucks.

A Solid Fighter

rydad | Sept. 5, 2013 | Review of Skullgirls

As the title says, this is a solid old school style arcade fighting game. The graphics are extremely fluid and nice to look at. An entertaining and bizarre fighting game good for killing some time.

All Kinds of HD Goodness

rydad | Sept. 5, 2013 | Review of DuckTales: Remastered

I'm generally an opponent of remakes, I'm all for this one. The animations and graphics are so smooth and colorful, and just overall pleasant on the eye. While I wouldn't go so far as to say it's better than the original 8-bit version, it's still a great (and great looking) way to get that nostalgia fix.

Great RTS Game

rydad | July 16, 2013 | Review of Rome: Total War

I've played my fair share of RTS games in my day, and this is one of the few that I keep coming back to. In my opinion, the best title in the Total War series, and possibly my favorite RTS game. Looking forward to playing the sequel.

Classic

rydad | July 16, 2013 | Review of FINAL FANTASY VII

There's not much to say about this game. It's a classic, pure and simple. One of the best RPG's around and my personal favorite of the FF series.

This Town Is CRAAAAZY

rydad | July 16, 2013 | Review of Condemned: Criminal Origins

A tense and very atmospheric horror FPS. Though far from perfect, that doesn't mean you shouldn't play it. Despite some flaws, it's still one of the better horror games of the last decade. And for $15, you can't go wrong.
